1.) I can't remember the last time my body woke up all on its own.
Since Jorn was born, 7 years and 4 months ago (and actually a bit before since late pregnancy has a way of keeping you up in preparation for a newborn) I haven't gone to bed, slept and then woke up when my body felt sleep had fully quenched the thirst of fatigue. I'm not complaining but it's pretty remarkable if you think about it. That's a long time. It can't be good for you either.
2.) If you surround yourself with lovely things, even your messes will be pretty.
I was busying myself with tidying up our dining room which houses most of the vintage for my shop on it's way to be listed and my only reason in doing so was so that I could use the table. But all of the things in that pile were truly lovely and so they were really fine just being there as is. I like that.
